Merdeka! Merdeka! Merdeka!

Happy Independence day to my fellow countrymen in Malaysia and abroad. Below is a video a friend (Davina L) was kind enough to share on her timeline.  Profound, meaningful and so true when it comes to describing my love for my country.

No man, no madness
Though their sad power may prevail
Can possess, conquer, my country’s heart
They rise to fail
She is eternal

Long before nations’ lines were drawn
When no flags flew, when no armies stood
My land was born

And you ask me why I love her
Through wars, death and despair
She is the constant, we who don’t care
And you wonder will I leave her – but how?
I cross over borders but I’m still there now

How can I leave her?
Where would I start?
Let man’s petty nations tear themselves apart
My land’s only borders lie around my heart

Till Then
